All Rise! The Marshall Court - A 2 Part Talk by Historian Gary Hylander

March 19

Natick Community Senior Center

John Marshall is arguably the most important judicial guru in American legal history. In later years, John Adams wrote that his nomination of Marshall to the Court was the “proudest act” of his life. As the fourth Chief Justice, Marshall moved the court to the very center of constitutional government. He viewed the Constitution as both a legal and political document. Marshall is honored today not because he decided cases, but because he got them right.   This is part 1 of the 2 part talk.
